“Poet Cat Hepburn has what it takes to dominate the spoken word realm” Broadway Baby


Poet - photo by Martin Windebank


Based on the success of my debut book, I wrote and performed my 5 and 4-star sell-out solo show #GIRLHOOD at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019. As a poet, I’ve performed all over the UK and beyond. My highlights include supporting Dr John Cooper Clarke, Saul Williams and George The Poet.

Before the pandemic, my poetry career was very stage-focused. More recently I’ve been writing poetry and performing spoken word for corporate videos, ad campaigns and private commissions.
